You'll stay in an intimate cabin where you will sleep in dormitory-style rooms for all nights. The beds are bunk beds and mattresses. The cabin has showers, Wi-Fi, and a kitchen.
You don't need any kayaking experience to enjoy this adventure - the guides are great at making it enjoyable for all abilities.
You'll need a moderate level of fitness. The kayaking is 6 hours of relaxed paddling each day, with plenty of breaks along the way. The hike is quite steep to start, with a total altitude gain of 600m, and can be quite challenging when wet. Don't worry though, there is no rush to get to the top and you can take it at your own pace. The guides may also offer to take you on a shorter hike, but this is weather depending.
You must be able to swim to attend this trip. You will be asked to complete a waiver when you attend the trip.
The minimum age is 18, or 16 if accompanied by a parent/guardian.
You will be picked up from Stavanger Airport at 6 pm, and then driven to the cabin by the fjord, which overlooks the Lysefjord.
After you have settled in, the guides will prepare a nice dinner for you and explain the details for the following day. This trip includes all food, accommodation, equipment, and airport transfers.
After breakfast, you will head out for a full day of kayaking on the Lysefjord. For those that want to, you will have an opportunity to learn some skills along the way, before stopping for lunch.
During the paddle, you'll see the Pulpit Rock, waterfalls, caves, and if you're lucky some of the local wildlife (seals, great sea eagles, porpoises).
In the afternoon you will arrive back at the cabin, with enough time to relax a little. The evening will be spent enjoying a pleasant dinner, and experiencing the Norwegian "hygge" (a cozy feeling) of a traditional Norwegian cabin.
Wake up in Norwegian paradise, whilst enjoying a nice cup of coffee over breakfast. This will prepare you for the day's hike up Pulpit Rock - the views are incredible!
After enjoying views of the fjord from above, you will head back down to the cabin for yet another pleasant dinner and movie night.
It's time to get back in the kayaks, for another breath-taking paddle, over to the island of Bergsholmen. Explore the waterfalls and incredible cliff faces, keeping an eye out for the seals on the way.
You will arrive back at Stavanger airport by 4 pm for your flight home.
